What is the basis for the various pricing of Covid-19 test?
Yin Qingbo, director of the Public Health Department of Hebei Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, gave a more objective answer:
Yin Qingbo: The first one is cost accounting. The price of the kit, the extraction liquid involved in the intermediate process, and other corresponding material costs, and this material cost, different manufacturers have different prices, which causes different prices in different hospitals. In addition, the country advocates a method that allows mixed inspections for low-risk groups. After mixed inspections, prices are even more inconsistent. Our hospital has a 1:1 ratio. But for example, in schools, the state allows it to be 1:3 or 1:5. There were mixed inspections of 10 people in the first two days, but 10 people require higher skills. In this way, their cost will come down. I know there are 35, 45 (yuan).
Yin Qingbo said that no matter what the price is high or low and the detection method is different, the final result must be guaranteed.
Yin Qingbo: This is through national quality control. You can rest assured that you will be responsible to yourself and others, because the process here, the corresponding quality control, and the source of the corresponding preparations will be guaranteed.
I would also like to remind everyone that if there is a willingness to test or a test demand, not only should you shop around, you also need to consider various factors such as the test speed and the time for the test results to be released.
